Tires Questions and Answers

Q: Is it okay to mix tire brands on a car?
A: Sometimes mixing brands and models on your car is unavoidable, but having a complete matching set is best. If possible, use the same tire on the front or rear wheels. While it's not usually advised, you can mix different tire brands on the same car, if you follow a few simple guidelines. Those include: never mix winter tires with all-season or summer tires; and to not mix run-flat tires with non-run-flat tires. For guidelines in the Bushwood area, give us a call at 301-769-2400.

Q: What are the advantages to rotating my tires?
A: Get your tires rotated and get an even amount of tread wear on your tires. Evenly worn tires contribute to a smooth and comfortable ride. Rotating your tires consistently can also extend the life of your tires. It can enhance safety by helping to prevent pulling and an uneven grip between the tire and the pavement.

Q: At what mileage interval should I rotate my tires?
A: Experts recommend you rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. While this is a good rule of thumb, your vehicle's exact interval will depend on its drivetrain and your driving habits. More aggressive drivers in the Bushwood area may need to rotate their tires more often. Our experts at Hill's Auto Repair can work with you to determine the tire rotation schedule that will work best.

Q: Does my tire warranty influence my rotation schedule?
A: Tire manufacturers know that tire rotation is important for even tread wear. Tire mileage warranties are most often set by the manufacturers with tire rotations included. Failing to rotate your tires may void your tires manufacture warranty.

Q: How does snow tire usage influence rotation decisions?
A: If you have snow tires check your tire pressure and rotate your winter tires on a regular schedule. Rotating snow and winter tires is important to maintaining even treadwear and preserving maximum traction in icy conditions.

Q: What throws tires out of balance?
A: If you hit a curb or pothole your wheel-tire assembly can get out of balance. Everyday wear on tires and wheels can also cause an imbalance. Many experts recommended that you get your tires balanced every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every 2 years. If you buy a new set of tires, you may find that tire balancing is included in your purchase. At Hill's Auto Repair, we can check your tire balance and make any necessary adjustments for you.

Q: How do you check tire pressure?
A: First, remove the cap from the air valve on the tire and put it somewhere you won't lose it. Press the tire gauge against the open valve stem for a second or two. Next, read the air pressure gauge. Compare the number on the gage with the recommended tire pressure from your cars owner's manual or the sticker that should be next to the driver's side door opening. Finally, replace the tire's air valve cap.

Q: How do you check tire tread depth?
A: Check all of your tires in multiple locations by inserting a penny into the tread groove on your tire with Lincoln's head facing toward you and the top of his head touching the tire. If you can see all of Lincoln's head, your tires are worn out and you need new tires. Of course, you can bring your vehicle to Hill's Auto Repair in Bushwood and our experts can check it for you.

I brought my 34' travel trailer in today to have tires mounted. I tried about six other places in Mechanicsville before I called Hills, and all of them did not want to do the work. From the minute I stepped in the lobby I was treated like family , what a great bunch of folks! From the fella that checked me in to the young lady that cashed me out, all excellent! The tech that installed the tires (Benny) started the job at 9Am, exactly the time my appointment was set for and finished at 10-10:15. Benny was very courteous and also helped me find a burnt out fuse on my truck after he installed the tires. In this day and age it is hard to find people who will go out of their way for others and they do exactly that at Hills Auto! They have gained a customer for life with me as I have never in my life had such wonderful service from an automotive repair shop! Keep up the great work!
